This information was published on Tuesday at the website Doble Amarilla de Argentina and bears the signature of journalist Fernando Czyz, who assured that the president of Colombia would have communicated with Alejandro Domínguez, president of Conmebol, after the new postponement of the format of the Copa América 2020.
The Conmebol has not yet announced officially how the continental tournament will be played in the coming year and there are rumors that the final phase would be entirely in Argentina and not in Colombia, country that assures and would have to organize again the event (by the rotation system) and that would not agree with the semifinals and the decisive game are played in Rioplaten lands. The 'party' has now gone to play in other areas, including the political.
On the one hand, Iván Duque and Mauricio Macri, presidents of Colombia Y Argentina, respectively, they played the subject in a meeting held at the Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires. There, the former leader of Boca Juniors would have given the go-ahead for the decisive stages to be played in the coffee country. However in the Conmebol there is no white smoke and have postponed the official announcement, but ensuring that this would be before the end of the current event that is held in Brazil.
According to Fernando Czyz, the AFA would have managed to convince Alejandro Domínguez to give him a few more days to continue negotiating with Colombia, fact that would have infuriated Duque that, through Ramón Jesurín, president of the Colombian Football Federation, sent a message to the Conmebol. "If there is no fast definition, we are going to withdraw the candidature and probably we will not present the selection", it would have been the message to Alejandro Domínguez.
This week will be key to defining the future of the America Cup 2020. Will it be that political pressure will help the final stages to be played in Colombia or finally the Conmebol will be decided by Argentina?
